In Springfield there's a hat they say
'Twas worn by Mr. Lincoln.
It has been proudly on display
But experts are rethinkin'.
The stovepipe hat is from his day,
But there's no proof he wore it.
Is it a hoax and did they pay
Six million dollars for it?

I now have an opportunity to share my thoughts on many things. I'm an incurable optimist. I also love to solve crossword puzzles and to write light verse. I love to read, to garden, to play the piano, to collect stamps and coins, and to watch "Curb Your Enthusiasm".
